Amazon has a bunch of Region 1 Classic Who DVDs on sale: 

Many other titles are also discounted in the 30something% range. I have no idea how long these discounts will last.

FYI, American and Canadian Whovians!

Stolen from the TARDIS Library main page:

US & Canada fans, be warned — BBC Worldwide Americas have confirmed a list of 19 classic series Doctor Who DVDs being deleted from their catalog in 2013, meaning that when current stocks are are exhausted, they will no longer be available from retailers.

So if any of these are missing from your collection, now’s the time to buy before it’s too late! The list of titles affected are: The Rescue/The Romans, The Web Planet, The Time Meddler, The Gunfighters, The Invasion, The War Games, Terror of the Autons, The Time Monster, Planet of the Spiders, Black Orchid, Time-Flight, The Awakening, Frontios, Planet of Fire, The Mark of the Rani, Battlefield, Ghost Light and The Curse of Fenric.

The Two Doctors is also on this list, however this is a special case as it appears likely to be re-released as a special edition in 2014, although without the Jimmy Savile content contained on the original.

Ooh oooh OOOOH.

The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot, according to Colin Baker, is getting a DVD release as part of a package that also includes Matt Smith. Based on what I’ve heard previously, I’m betting this is part of the 50th anniversary collector’s boxset that’s meant to include The Day of the Doctor, The Ultimate Guide and The Science of Doctor Who. Happy days!

be-alittleproudofme asked:

yo i saw your post about cheap classic who dvds at jb hifi and i wanna get some but i don't know which ones to get! which are your favourite episodes?

I have loads of favs. Haha. So I will just name one of my fav eps of each classic Doctor.

  1. The Time Meddler.
  2. The Tomb of the Cybermen.
  3. Inferno.
  4. City of Death.
  5. The Caves of Androzani.
  6. The Two Doctors.
  7. Survival.
  8. The Movie (well it is the only classic 8th doctor dvd obvs.).

But yeah there are so many. Also recommend ‘The Beginning’ boxset which contains the first 3 eps plus a reconstruction of Marco Polo. The Romans is also really good (first doctor), but it is a part of a boxset along with the Rescue. The second Doctor eps: The Mind Robber and The Invasion are also good. Spearhead from Space (three), Genesis of the Daleks (four), The Curse of Fenric (seven). There are so many good eps. I could name more fourth doctor ones due to my bias. But yeah. Oh and the third doctor episode ‘The Mind of Evil’. Oh and the Hand of Fear, which is a 4th doc ep and also Sarah jane’s last ep. 

My first classic doctor dvd/s was actually the Beginning boxset, which as a whovian I do recommend due to it having the first episode “An Unearthly Child”, which is good, but not the best, “The Daleks” for obvious reasons, and “The Edge of Destruction” which takes place in the TARDIS, and is still good. But yeah, it is the first 3. 

The Aztecs is also good (1st doc). I also like Nightmare of Eden (4th doc). The Claws of Axos (3rd doc). Earthshock (5th doc). Battlefield (7th doc). The Mark of the Rani (6th doc), as the Rani is awesome. 

But yeah there are so many. And I enjoy them all, even eps that aren’t so good like The Twin Dilemma. Yes I enjoy that one, although obvs not my fav. 

Also the Key to Time boxset is a particular fav. Anyway. I’ll just post this before I name any more. Thanks for the ask. :)
